About

The Music with Education is a flexible programme from Bangor University, which allows you to develop a deeper understanding of the theory and practice of teaching music to others. The course is intended for students with backgrounds in music or education (or both) who wish to develop skills and knowledge in both disciplines while exploring some of the ways in which the two fields are related.

Overview

On this Music with Education programme from Bangor University ,  you will develop your musical skills at an advanced level through performance, composition or musicology, while enhancing your knowledge and conceptual understanding of a range of issues relating to music education. 

You will hone personal and professional skills valued in the music education sector, and will develop skills and methodologies to undertake specialist research in your chosen area of expertise.

You will work closely with established researchers, most of whom have international profiles. 

The School of Music enjoys close links with industrial and third-sector parties such as the Venue Cymru, Ensemble Cymru and the BBC; in addition both the School of Music and the School of Education share well established partnerships with local primary and secondary schools, where many teachers of music are our graduates.

Careers

The MA in Music with Education acts as a bridge between a Music degree and a professional career in music education. It will give you valuable insights that will prepare you for a postgraduate teacher training qualification. It is also appropriate for those already working in music education looking to advance their careers. 

Alternatively, the programme will set you on the road to further research in music education, at PhD level and beyond. The course will also equip you with skills in critical thinking, analysis and communication which are valued by employers both within and outside the fields of music and education.
